Regime Change in the Senate III

There has been a lot of chatter in the media, the Blogosphere and across ordinary family dinner tables about how "control of the Senate" hinges on the fate of Senator Torricelli's seat.


But in the frenzy over Senator Torricelli's departure, it is worth keeping in mind that Republican Senator Chaffee of Rhode Island has said that if Republicans took back the majority in the Senate, he would consider leaving the party -- tipping the balance back to the Democrats.

It may be time for Republicans to start some serious negotiations with Senator Chaffee.
